East Hampshire District Council operates an alternate weekly kerbside recycling and waste collection service from wheeled bins. This means that ordinary refuse is collected one week and then recycling is collected the next week.
Report a missed collection
This is a joint service with Winchester City Council.
If your bin has been missed, please complete the report a missed collection on the Winchester City Council website or call 0300 300 0013.
You must report a missed collection by 12 midday the following working day for our crew to return.
What we collect
We collect black bins (recycling) and green bins (household waste) on alternate weeks, which means that although bins are collected each week on the same day you need to remember which colour bin to put out.
We also collect glass - the glass boxes are collected every four weeks.
We offer an extra service where we will collect your garden waste for a small annual cost. If you opt for this service collections are on the same day as your refuse (green) bin.
Bins and boxes should be put out by 7am on collection day.
What we don't collect
Should any of the following items be found in your household refuse bin it may not be emptied. Any offending items will need to be removed before the next collection.
- Clinical waste (we provide a free domestic service for this)
- Commercial, trade or industrial waste
- DIY material
- Electrical products
- Garden waste
- Glass (we provide a free domestic service for this)
- Hot ashes
- Paint/ chemicals or oil
- Poisonous or noxious waste
- Scrap metal
- Stones or brick rubble
Some items listed above can be disposed of at Hampshire's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), alternatively Recycle Now has a useful tool to find your nearest disposal or recycling point.
